Adelaide Brighton has outlined the steps it will take to provide a safe workplace in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nick Miller, Chief Executive Officer, has released the following statement:
“As the global outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve in Australia, I would like to provide you with an update on the steps Adelaide Brighton is taking to provide a safe workplace and ensure business continuity.
Across Adelaide Brighton we have no known cases of COVID-19 and we remain vigilant to ensure the wellbeing of everyone.
We have established two internal coordinating groups to help us monitor the situation and make agile decisions. These groups meet daily with a focus on contingency planning around staff wellbeing and supply chain management.
All our 130 + locations remain open for business and we are well stocked with raw materials to meet the needs of all our valued customers. We’ll continue to meet with our customers to discuss project requirements. We do ask for your understanding when we practice good social distancing such as not shaking hands and maintaining a safe distance.
As a precautionary measure we have implemented social distancing on all our worksites, in line with the expert advice from Australian health authorities. This includes restricting domestic and international travel, cancelling large face-to-face meetings and implementing flexible working arrangements wherever possible. We have good hygiene practices in place and require our team members and visitors not to attend an Adelaide Brighton worksite if they have flu-like symptoms.
Adelaide Brighton has been supplying cement, lime, concrete and concrete products that have helped build Australia since 1882. Please be assured we will continue to take all steps necessary to fulfil our role of safely manufacturing the construction materials that our valued customers need.
Please stay safe.”
